Do you ever wear the same clothing items to the same events?  I have this strange habit of doing exactly that. I recently admitted that I wore the same outfit two 4th of July's in a row. Then, I wore the above outfit for my first day of teaching this week, and when I looked back at last year's first day of teaching... same shirt. In fact, I have worn this same shirt at every single job interview I've had in the last five years. It's not a luck thing (there were quite a few jobs I didn't get... thank you 2009 economy), I think it's more of a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it thing."

What about you? Do you ever wear the same outfits to the same events?

  1. Yes! If I have an outfit that 'works' I wear it over and over again. Keeping it simple!

  2. Great skirt. I wish my mom still took me "back to school shopping," I need some new pieces for the quickly approaching fall.

  3. Ah, you can pull off wearing (semi) flat shoes with a pencil skirt and look fantastic. What's your secret? Oh, that's right, you're tall! :D Lucky girl. I understand why that's a go-to blouse, it's the perfect mix of interesting and functional.

  5. Guilty with a dress I have for nice occasions! But that's when I'm supposed to wear, it, right? ;)
    This is such a gorgeous outfit - the print on this skirt is really unique.

  6. We are creatures of habit! But rewearing something over and over again is a sign that we picked out something perfect!

  8. I always wore the same suit to interviews too simply because I didnt have a ton of Money after law School to vary hahaha. But I tend to do that to but combining it with another Piece :-). That pattern is super fun Ashley, what a perfect transitional fall Piece. Thanks for visiting my blog, always fun Meeting new Bloggers :-)Following you now via GFC and Bloglovin :-)

  10. That is too funny about you wearing the same thing! I don't think I do... or at least, I don't realize I do! Maybe I do and I just never noticed. Love your first day of school look!

  11. I've definitely worn something to to the same event. Some pieces just seem so situationally perfect, that I don't realize I've already worn it for that situation haha.

  12. Girl I love the shirt. So keep it going, I say.

    This post reminded me of something funny though. My 3rd & 4th grade school pictures have me in the same shirt. I always laugh when I'm at my moms and walk by those awkward 12 pics around school picture things.

  13. Hey if the item is good for something and looks good like this top, then keep doing it! It is so versatile and just goes to show you get good use out of your closet :)

  14. I have a couple clothes traditions...I wear the same outfit every valentine's day...and I wore the same outfit on my first day of college and my last day of college. No good reason, really, I'm just weird.

    That's a lovely and classic outfit!

  15. Great look! It's a classic worth wearing over and over again!

  16. You ROCK that skirt girlfriend! I absolutely love, love, love this look - especially on you! Hope you had an excellent first day. :) XO!

  17. Apparently I wore the same outfit two Christmases in a row and my cousins totally called me out on it haha! Never again... But I also have a go-to interview outfit that I wear to basically every job interview I have haha It's not like they have to know that, right? ;) Have a good week!

  18. Another great skirt. Pretty & Elegant top too. If it works - why not! I have done that with a lot of pieces - I wear them to the same occasions or the same way. I did the same last year with a blouse when I went interviewing before starting my job. =)

  19. This looks great, I definitely have a few go-to pieces that I wear when I want to impress.

  20. Ashley, the outfit is simple and chic. That being said, I think it's the versatility of this white top/blouse that makes it a hit in your wardrobe. Even I have some pieces that I rely on more often than others.

    Cheers!

  22. I've been guilty of that too! We are all just creatures of habit, I think.
    When you mentioned wearing it on the first day of school two years running, I thought of this little article, about a teacher who wore the same outfit for picture day, for 40 years!

  27. Ha! Yes, I do this too. I think it is the feeling we get from certain pieces is "right" for certain events. Like happy colored dress goes with happy festive event. ;-)

  29. I love your white top. It's such a classic piece that you can't help but reach for it and wear it again. I tend not to remix items and pair it with the same things over again.

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
